Are you tired of receiving unwanted calls on your Android phone? Whether it’s a telemarketer or an annoying ex, blocking their calls can bring you peace of mind. In this tutorial, we will show you how to block a call on Android using the built-in features of your device.

Step 1: Open the Phone App

The first step is to open the Phone app on your Android device. Look for the green phone icon typically found on your home screen or in the app drawer.

Step 2: Navigate to Call Settings

Once you have opened the Phone app, tap on the three-dot menu icon located in the top-right corner of the screen. This will open a dropdown menu with various options. From this menu, select “Settings”.


If you can’t find the three-dot menu icon, try tapping on the gear-shaped settings icon instead.

Step 3: Select Call Blocking

In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find an option called “Call Blocking” or “Blocked numbers”. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 4: Add a Number to Block

In the Call Blocking section, you will see a list of any numbers that are already blocked. To add a new number to block, tap on the “+” or “Add” button (depending on your device).

  • Note:
  • If your device uses a different term such as “Blocked numbers”, look for an option that allows you to add new numbers to block.

Step 5: Enter the Number

A dialog box will appear prompting you to enter the number you want to block. Type in the phone number or select it from your contacts using the provided options.

Step 6: Confirm Blocking

After entering the number, tap on the “Block” or “Done” button to confirm. The selected number will now be added to your blocked list, and you won’t receive calls or messages from it anymore.

Step 7: Manage Blocked Numbers

If you ever need to manage your blocked numbers, simply return to the Call Blocking settings in the Phone app. From there, you can remove any blocked numbers or add new ones as needed.

By following these simple steps, you can easily block unwanted calls on your Android device. Take control of your phone and eliminate those annoying interruptions once and for all!
